What happens when I call Heart 2 Heart?
If you have completed a cardiac rehabilitation programme you can commence the classes immediately. We will need a referral form from your cardiac rehabilitation professional – please see link below.
If you have not completed a cardiac rehabilitation programme we will need to complete an assessment. This will involve us identifying your challenges and setting goals with you. After this you will complete a short exercise test. This enables us to start your rehabilitation programme at the correct level.
What happens in the classes?
In line with current guidelines we complete a COVID screen for each participant, the evening before your scheduled session you will receive an email reminder that will contain a short questionnaire which we require you to complete – this will commence your COVID-19 screening. As we continue to follow strict hygiene measures in the clinic, on the day of your session we will provide you with an FFP2 face mask and require you to sanitise your hands on entry. Your blood pressure is then measured followed by a temperature and oxygen level check. You will then be fitted with a heart rate monitor. This allows us to exercise you within your training heart rate range during the session. This means that we do not over or under exert you during the session.
You will then complete a warm up to allow the coronary arteries to fully dilate. After this you will complete five circuits. This is followed by a cool down which brings your heart rate back to where it started.
There is a maximum of five participants in each cardiac rehabilitation session and all equipment is sanitised between each use.
Classes take place on Tuesdays at 2pm & Wednesdays at 10.45am, 12pm, 1.45pm, 3pm & 4.30pm.
Thanks Karen for your supportive and specialist knowledge on respiratory and cardiac functioning & recovery throughout my long covid journey. The cardiac classes on zoom with Karen & Fiona were perfect during lockdown to regain muscular strength & exercise tolerance in a supported way from the comfort of your own home. I would highly recommend your service to anyone requiring cardiac rehabilitation.
Excellent attention to detail and coordination of needs. Exceptionally responsive. Very caring and attentive. Superb guidance and management, planning of personal exercise programme, classes etc. Very happy with the service provided at all times.
